The test administration schedule is designed to provide multiple opportunities for candidates to take the tests they need for certification, endorsement, and/or admission to a state-approved educator preparation program in Washington. However, because of the number of test administrations offered, the registration deadlines and score report dates for some consecutive test administrations overlap. Therefore, for some test dates it is not possible for candidates who do not achieve a passing score to register for the subsequent administration before the late or emergency registration period. Candidates are advised to check the administration schedule in advance and plan retake opportunities accordingly.
For additional information about testing on consecutive test dates, see "Test Fees and Payment Policies."
